Scholl Athlete’s Foot Spray – 150ml
Scholl Athlete’s Foot Spray is a treatment for athlete’s foot which works as a simple spray. Just two sprays a day is enough to treat the cause of athlete’s foot, combating the itching and irritation caused by infection. Ideal for those looking for a quick and simple solution to athlete’s foot.
Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection which usually starts between your toes and can spread over the soles and sides of your shoes. If the fungi that live on your feet are given a warm, moist environment where they can thrive, they can cause athlete’s foot infections. Common symptoms of athlete’s foot include:
- Itching or burning sensation
- White, scaly patches of skin between the toes
- Cracking skin
- Very dry or scaly skin
- Foot odour
Scholl Athlete’s Foot Spray contains the active ingredient Tolnaftate, which is an antifungal medication. This means it kills the fungi that cause athlete’s foot as they are living on your skin. This treats the infection at its source, providing effective relief in a simple spray.
Scholl Athlete’s Foot Spray can be used during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. However, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using this or any other medication at this time, so they can be sure that the treatment is suitable for you.
